1. This meeting of the City Council of the City of Cedar Hills, having been posted throughout the City and the press notified, was called to order at 6:25 p.m. by C. Lowder.
2. Discussion regarding Golf Course Marketing (6:25 p.m.)
Concerns were discussed regarding the golf course:
• The golf course staff is worried about job security.
• Lost and stolen range balls are still an issue. Staff would like to place signs that announce that range balls are Cedar Hills property. There was an incident where some children were selling golf balls on golf course property. Cecil Read asked them to leave and later parents were upset and went to Mayor McGee. Mayor McGee wrote a letter saying that the children could sell golf balls at that location. Cecil Read would like direction on how the Council would like to address these issues.
• C. Lowder said that he does not want anybody within the golf course boundaries that is not a paid golfer. Cecil Read suggested that course staff take the name of any first-time trespasser and give a warning that they will be issued a citation the second time. C. Lowder also suggested putting a flyer out to the street down by Holes #1 and #2.
• Brad Orton of the Golf Course Advisory Committee talked about golf course marketing. The committee still feels that the wrapped vehicles are a great marketing idea. There are some golf course employees and residents that would be willing to wrap their own cars. There is less liability to the City if City employees’ cars are wrapped. Another idea is to wrap two Harley Davidson motorcycles. The motorcycles will be displayed at the pro shop and the Harley Davidson showroom with a promotion to give one away on a certain day for a hole-in-one. It would be cross-marketed with the Harley Davidson shop. The Council liked the motorcycle promotion. Brad Orton said that another marketing idea is advertisements with coupons in the newspapers or postcard mailers. He presented a proposal for a 2006 marketing proposal. It uses KSL for a total of $10,000 and $10,000 in trade.
3. This meeting was adjourned at 7:05 p.m. by C. Lowder.
